I'm a freelance artist and textile designer specialising in handcrafted batik. My designs are influenced by the vivid colours, amazing patterns and textures in our natural surroundings.
Using detailed pencil drawing I combine shape, colour and texture to create original designs on silk. I use the traditional technique of batik which involves wax resist and over dyeing, but in a modern way to produce fresh vibrant designs.
I create handcrafted batik designs on silk available unframed or in simple white box frames and unique silk scarves. I have expanded my range using digital printing to produce cushions and cards.
Education and experience:
I have a BA Hons in Printed Textiles and Batik from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee.
I've been involved with art and design, working as freelance textile designer, retail fashion buyer, primary school teaching assistant and community artist.
